Critic reviews for Aporia

With only an hour left, Season 3 remains a tad predictable and a touch redundant overall, but Episode 9 was a particularly stirring, enlightening, and rewarding hour of television.

Whatever happens, the stage is set for an explosive finale next week, so to that end this episode did everything it needed to, a few contrived moments notwithstanding.

I've enjoyed season three of Fargo so much for so many reasons that I've barely had the time or inclination to comment on the few things that haven't quite clicked.

Though this season has been a slight step down from the brilliant previous seasons, it manages to pack on the intrigue and offer a touching arc for Burgle with its second-to-last episode.

"Aporia" drove us right up to the Season 3 finale, delivering a confident and capable Nikki and a broken and floundering Gloria.

Nothing says "Midwestern crime" quite like the image of a streak of blood in pooling spilled milk.
